Shara Porter is a designer and artist who has made a career from hand printing images on fine men’s and woman’s accessories. Shara received her MFA in Textiles from UMASS Dartmouth in 2004 and started her business adding signature printed images to items soon after.

An observation during a long drive prompted the designer’s current collection of handbags and small leather goods. She spotted a sign for a construction company with a picture of a dump truck on it. As she got closer, she noticed a small unicorn on the corner of the sign. Shara found the quirky combination of information humorous… The misplaced creature inspired Shara to create similar juxtapositions with her own collection of goods.

She loved the idea of taking an ultra-feminine purse and putting something unexpected on it, such as a tire or a ladder. The items have since evolved to include all kinds of imagery, including more feminine and playful designs like birds and trees, and a line of men’s accessories as well.

Aside from an occasional trunk show, you can find her line at boutiques across the country.
